Kelso Rotary Quacker 5000 Sponsorship Opportunities

The Kelso Rotary Club will be holding their 31st  annual “Quacker 5000” on September 14, 2019.  We sell around 6,000 tickets throughout the community starting in early July at the Go Fourth Festival in Longview and continue at several venues (see the list below) throughout the community up until the last day of the Kelso Highlander Festival on September 10th.  We are asking you to become a sponsor this year by making a donation to our foundation. Besides all of the recognition you will receive, the most important thing that you will receive as a sponsor is knowing that you are helping those who are in need.
